IPA's Universal Basic Income Study Featured on NPR
NPR's Goats and Soda health and development blog covers IPA's research on the impact of universal basic income in Kenya. The latest study in partnership with GiveDirectly compared groups who received a one-time lump sum versus long-term monthly payments. Results so far have been largely positive, particularly for the "lump sum" group. The "universal" aspect of providing cash transfers to every adult in the community boosted impact without resulting in inflation.
